HomeZada Professional is now marketing to the insurance industry a custom cloud-based application that allows online inventory to go along with a homeowner policy.

Homezada is a service that helps homeowners keep critical information all in one place.

For the insurance industry, HomeZada replaces the paper and PDF forms recommended for home inventory.

Insurance professionals can give their customers access to HomeZada to do their own home inventory, or they can do the inventory on behalf of customers as an extra service.

“Most homeowners are under-insured because of a lack of riders required for collectible items and are at risk for not having a current home inventory safely stored away from the home,” cofounder Elizabeth Dodson said in a news release. “HomeZada Professional allows the insurance market to improve their service by providing an online home inventory solution that also includes automated home maintenance reminders and the ability to manage all their home improvement projects.”

In April, the El Dorado Hills company launched the HomeZada Professional line, which was designed for real estate professionals to give to their clients.

HomeZada Professional tracks maintenance schedules, warranty information, service receipts, design plans and other home-related information with just a few keystrokes or swipes on a smartphone or tablet.

HomeZada Professional is $40 per gift or $50 per property.

The HomeZada service costs homeowners $59 per year if they buy it on their own.

HomeZada, started last year by veteran local technology entrepreneurs, features 150 maintenance tips, and it sets routine maintenance schedules for home appliances and systems such as changing air conditioner filters. It also keeps all contracts, receipts and contact information for service providers such as architects, interior designers, landscapers and contractors. There also is a module for home renovation projects.
